What You'll Get
Superhuman olfactory abilities allow sommeliers to detect subtle notes in wine, just as they allow dogs to say hello and tell each other The Odyssey. Sniff, sip, and tell great tales with today's Groupon: for $40, you get a Vintner Salon Decades of Wine tasting for two at Château Julien Wine Estate in Carmel (an $80 value). Set on a 16-acre vineyard at the foot of the Carmel Valley Mountains, Château Julien combines magnificent views with a wine library containing more than 25 vintages. In the roughly one-hour Vintner Salon Decades of Wine tasting, two guests will tour the Château Julien grounds in the company of a certified wine specialist, tasting five to six hand-selected vintage vinos in their native habitat. Château Julien can accommodate groups of up to eight people, making today’s deal an elegant way for book groups to get together without the threat of paper cuts looming overhead.
Château Julien Wine Estate was featured on JustLuxe and California Winery Advisor. Yelpers give the winery a three-star average, and TripAdvisors give it an average of four owl eyes. Four Yahoo! Travelers give it a 4.5-star average.
